STATE COLLEGE, Pa., Jan. 24, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- The operation of electric vehicles (EVs) under low temperature conditions is a crucial condition required to achieve customer approval in countries around the world.
For this reason the BMW Group partnered with EC Power, LLC, the inventor of the All-Climate-Battery (ACB™) by executing an intellectual property agreement that will allow the BMW Group the use of the ACB technology.
Published in the top scientific journal Nature in 2016, the patented ACB™ technology delivers unprecedented power and energy while enabling fast charging under all conditions, including sub-freezing temperatures. The technology creates a self-heating function that warms up batteries from a low ambient temperature to the optimal operating condition in a matter of seconds, either prior to or during driving. This rapid self-heating function, which requires no external power source, also enables low-temperature fast charging. Using ACB™ cells, EVs can offer customers the convenience of traditional internal combustion engines even in cold climates.
